Pours muddy brown with an ecru head. Aroma has some slight grapey sweetness, bland bready malt. Flavor lacks the tartness the style requires, opting instead for a slightly roasty malty base with a bit of grape and cherry.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours bright copper with a fizzy beige head. Sour aroma. Perhaps a bit sulphury. Med minus body. It’s certainly and sharply sour. There does seem to be a little red berry. It’s certainly sour right to the end. Just a bit lacking in decipherable flavors.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange pour with a tan head. The aroma is a mix of cherries and what strongly resembles Dimetapp cold medicine. The flavor is more of the same. I get some strong cherry and grape notes as well as some toffee and a light bit of tartness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
